Punjab Police is again in the news, but it is for all the good reasons this time. Punjab Police helped a French tourist named Pierre “RideWithFrenchy” when his bag strap broke down in Amritsar. Surprisingly enough, it’s the first incident of its kind where Punjab Police not only helped the tourist park his bike but also gave him a free ride.
The incident happened when YouTube and French Tourist – RideWithFrenchy was covering the beauty of India in his blogs. After checking out from the hotel, he realized that one of the straps in his motorcycle carrier had broken down.
Stranded in moving traffic, people could not help him by stopping their vehicles. Watching a French Tourist stranded, Punjab Police Beat Officer Rajinder Singh stepped in to ask about his whereabouts. When Rajinder learned about the strap, he asked Pierre to park his bike near the patrolling station.
Rajinder later shared that he is originally from Amritsar and has been in service for the last 6 years.
Punjab Police Commanding Officer and Rajinder’s senior later learned about his problem. The Senior Officer asked Rajinder to give a ride to the international tourist to get those straps from the market. Then Rajinder and Pierre went to the market to get those straps.
The act of kindness by the Punjab Police is going viral on YouTube. Officers like Rajinder Singh are the real ambassadors of India.
